Kick off the new year with Lyft at the National Western Stock Show. Taking place January 7-22 at the Denver Coliseum, the Stock Show will feature plenty of fun events for Denverites to attend. With two weeks packed full of fun events, it may seem impossible to choose what to go to — so read on for our top picks.
Pro Rodeo (Jan. 12-22) - What screams “Stock Show” more than a Pro Rodeo? Gather up your family and friends and head to the Denver Coliseum to catch an event that features everything from barrel racing to bull riding, roping to rodeo clowns, and then some! There will be plenty of action with at least one rodeo a day starting January 12th until the finals on the 22nd.
Wild West Show (Jan. 14-15) - Based around the life and accomplishments of legend Buffalo Bill, the Wild West Show has been designed to both educate and entertain. Attendees can look forward to special reenactments of Bill’s world-famous show featuring appearances by himself, Annie Oakley and others. Be ready for some good ol’ Western fun!
Mutton Bustin’ (Jan. 17 & 21) - One of the most entertaining and certainly most adorable events at the National Western Stock Show will be Mutton Bustin’. Never heard of it? Mutton busting is similar to bull riding in concept, but instead of full grown men hopping on bulls, children ride sheep.
Xtreme Dogs (Jan. 16-17) - Who doesn’t love to watch dogs do amazing tricks? Head to the Xtreme Dogs event to see a variety of pups jump, lunge, fly and retrieve at unbelievable speeds.
USEF Hunter/Jumper Show (Jan. 12-16) - Watch horses defy gravity at one of the hunter/jumper shows! Each hunter/jumper event will showcase horses' abilities to fly over different jumps and obstacles setup around an arena to simulate a real-life hunting course.
